Karena & Bobby’s Engagement Photos

I’ve been eagerly anticipating today!  I’m sharing my engagement photo session with the #TIUteam!!!  As a bride, having an engagement shoot is really special for many reasons.  This is the perfect time to reminisce about incredible memories and soak in the moment of being engaged.  Most of all, just have fun with it…grab a cocktail and some good music and smile!  Extra bonus…you get to do a warm up with your wedding photographer so that they get to know you for your wedding day!
Bobby and I wanted our shoot to revolve around the Palm Springs lifestyle.  It’s our favorite weekend get-away spot and we love the Mid-Century vibes.  Our amazing and talented wedding photographer Jana Williams captured these moments that we are excited to share!
If you missed how Bobby proposed to me at the Tone It Up Retreat, check it out HERE!  It was the absolutely perfect proposal :)…and I got to share it all with YOU!!
 We shot these photos just outside the Palm Springs Welcome Center.  If you drive down Highway 111 you can see the the landmark designed by Mid-Century architect Albert Frey in 1965.
This is a photo of my vintage inspired engagement ring that Bobby designed with Trumpet & Horn. Our friends Jerry & Kim from Trumpet & Horn made me feel like the most special bride for the shoot by letting me have some fun with their jewelry collection for the day.  I’m still swooning over the vintage and antique opals, sapphires and diamonds.
Photography: Jana Williams
Karena: (in order) Trina Turk dress and jumpsuit, Mod Cloth floral dress and polka dot swimsuit, Planet Blue white crop top and maxi skirt
Bobby: Wils Styles shirts and Mr. Turk suit
